Eighty-five per cent agree that the government should do more to protect people who rent from private landlords. Darrell Sansom, managing director at AXA Business Insurance, said: “There is goodwill between landlords and their tenants and our research shows that rental home horror stories and negative stereotypes are few and far between.

“Having said that, we know that more and more people are slipping into the landlord role through circumstance rather than design, and it seems that despite a positive approach and good intentions, many are simply not aware of all of their safety responsibilities.
